    I still want to be a Rock Star! I love the electric guitar so much, acoustic too. I shocked myself on an amp I borrowed from a friend trying to play George Benson’s “Masquerade” back in the day, lol. I lived to learn a few chords by ear. Happy 40th anniversary of WOODSTOCK too, btw. Anyway, I want to get to know Jack White better on a personal level. Can’t leave U2 out of the equation, Smile! It’s all about the music baby. Nice article, thank you.

    Nice write-up, thank you! There are a few minor corrections I would like to mention however… Meg White is not Jack’s “former” bandmate, Jack has stated recently, during more than one interview, that the White Stripes are NOT over and will have a new album out in 2010. They have apparently already been in the studio together some this year. Their doc on the Stripes Canadian tour has not been released yet, it is slated for release this December but will first debut at the Toronto Film Fest this fall. Jack did not grow up in a “Mexican Town”, he grew up in the Mexicantown section of Southwest inner city Detroit. As for the rumors of Jack doing a solo album, he has stated that himself! Read the current interview piece in Spin in which the Dead Weather are the cover story.

    Sorry for all this, I admit it, I am a bit of a White Stripes geek. :)
    I can’t wait for this flick!

    Thanks, Noelle, I appreciate your feedback!
    A couple of the points you mentioned were direct quotes, and it’s my job to report things as they are said.
    Otherwise, I’ll be certain to call on you for fact-checking when I do publish that one-on-one with Jack!

    Thanks again for your commentary, I truly appreciate it and also understand your fierce loyalty to the Stripes.

    Keep reading!

    Warmly,
    Darrah

    I saw Page Plant live in 1995, and Ill be finally seeing U2 in Vegas this October (after over 25 years of wishing). This film couldnt come out at a better time. Long live Page and Edge! :)

    There’s also a story at Buzzine.com on this, that’s from another perspective. Love it, keep up the great work.
